15-17 November, Strasbourg (France)
The ASTERICS project is organising its second international Virtual Observatory school at the Observatoire Astronomique de Strasbourg, Strasbourg, France. You can have a look at the First ASTERICS School.
The Virtual Observatory (VO) is opening up new ways of exploiting the huge amount of data provided by the ever-growing number of ground-based and space facilities, as well as by computer simulations. The goal of the school is twofold:
To achieve these goals, VO experts will lecture and tutor the participants on the usage of VO tools and services. Real life examples of scientific applications will be given. A large fraction of the time will be dedicated to hands-on exercises, which will allow participants to become fully familiar with the VO capabilities on their own laptops.
In order to ensure the right level of interaction, participation will be restricted to a limited number of participants (40 approx.). Preference will be given to PhD students and post-docs.
